The league stage action of Indian Super League is moving into its business end. After more than a month of action, no team has confirmed their play-offs berth. Mumbai City FC, Delhi Dynamos and Chennaiyin FC look the better teams of the season, while FC Goa, Kerala Blasters and Pune City FC look off-colored. Still, there are chances for each of these teams to regain form and enter the title race. And you have the opportunity to involve in online betting with 12Bet to make some money in the process while enjoying football. Here is our preview of the next three matches of the ISL.
Kerala Blasters FC vs FC Goa
The match at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Kochi, will be the clash between the two bottom-dwelling clubs of the ISL. Blasters have nine points from eight matches, two more than what FC Goa managed from their eight matches. Kerala Blasters have been the better side this year. They have conceded just six goals, the lowest in the league at this stage. Their problem has been on the other end: scoring goals. They have managed just four goals from eight games: again, the lowest in the league.
If any team is comparably dismal in goal scoring, it has to be FC Goa. They have scored just five goals. However, their problem is not just concerned with goal scoring. They are conceding goals like millionaires’ spoilt kids. That they conceded 11 goals from eight matches does not reflect well on a defense manned by Brazil’s world-cup-winning veteran Lucio.
Prediction: Given the scoring of both the teams, a goalless draw is the most likely result. However, don’t just go by that alone in online betting. Goa’s defensive lapses may allow the Kerala team to sneak a win in front of their fans.
Delhi Dynamos FC vs Chennaiyin FC
There is a chance that the match may get cancelled due to the smoke and fog problem in Delhi. The match is scheduled at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Delhi. Even the normal life in the city is difficult at the moment due to excessive smoke and fog in the atmosphere. ISL football will be least of the priority for people and the government. If the match indeed takes place, it must be a treat to watch. These are the two best-skilled teams of the ISL this season. The Delhi outfit can go to the top spot with a win, while Chennaiyin FC will strive to break their winless run of three matches.
Mumbai City FC vs FC Pune City
Mumbai City FC, the current league leaders, will be looking for putting one foot at the doorstep of play-offs stage. A win over the struggling neighbors FC Pune City will take them closer to the target. On current form, they have the upper hand. FC Pune City are trying hard to stay afloat. A hard-fought win over Atletico de Kolkata must have rekindled their hopes. However, they will find it really hard against the in-form Mumbai City FC.
Prediction: Nothing is set in stone football, especially predicting results for online betting. Still, Mumbai City FC are poised to win this comfortably.
